Moorpark Country Club, Moorpark, California, Usa

An amazing facility located in Simi Valley just  50 miles north of Los Angeles. Settled on the residential community of Moorpark if features three dramatic 9 hole courses which can be played on any combination, each with its own characteristic and style, for a challenging and unforgettable 27 holes experience. Designed by Peter Jacobson and Jim Hardy  (Jacobsen Hardy Golf Design) in 2002, today Moorpark is recognized as one of the best golf courses of the region awarded with several accolades:

  • Ranked in Golf Magazine's "Top 10 You Can Play" for 2003
  • Golf Week's "America's Best 2005" - In Top 40 in all categories
  • 4 1/2 Stars by Golf Digest Magazine Best Places to Play in North America
  • Rated BEST Playing Conditions in Ventura County by Members & Staff in (2004 - 2005 | 2007 - 2012)
Of the three nines, Canyon Crest, Ridgeline and Creekside, it is really difficult to choose my favorite.
Canyon Crest (Par 36 3422 yds) is probably the easier of the three nines, with dramatic elevation changes and great views of the surroundings.
Ridgeline (Par 36 3470 yds) features several elevation changes as well, with 3 par 5s, one 660 yds long, and 3 par 3s.
Creekside (Par 36 3507 yds) is the tougher and longer of the three. Challenging and spectacular it runs along side a dry creek with some forced carries required.
The practice facilities are the best you can find in the area, located right in front of the magnificent 20,800 sq ft clubhouse designed in 2003 by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
A private Country Club open to the public. A must play for everyone I really recommend.
